JSON is the de facto log file format, and log files from every service and application are spread across your environment.
Verbose log files are difficult to scan quickly when troubleshooting or investigating issues.
Turning masses of JSON log data into actionable insights and diagnostic clues is time-consuming.
Avoid hunting across your servers for the right log with JSON log aggregation. Forward every JSON-formatted infrastructure, operating system, and application log to SolarWinds® Papertrail™ and view data with a central interface. Build an infrastructure-wide record of events to speed up analysis and troubleshooting, and simplify team collaboration with a shared log message history. Send logs directly using the syslog protocol or use the Papertrail tiny remote_syslog2 daemon for applications without native syslog support. Transmit logs over UDP or TCP with TLS encryption for increased security and protection.Sign up for a free plan
Live tail lets you watch as log messages are received by Papertrail. Use the pause, search, and infinite scroll features to maneuver around your log data and find the log messages you need when you need them. Monitor your servers and applications in real time and catch problems as they happen. With saved searches, you can create automatic alerts and receive notifications when new log messages match. Send alerts via email or team communication tools such as Slack, PagerDuty, Campfire, and your own custom webhooks. You can even use inactivity alerts to detect when an expected event doesn’t occur.Sign up for a free plan
Cut through verbose JSON log files with advanced searching and filtering capabilities. Use regular expressions to trim unnecessary log messages and focus on the ones you need. Narrow in on the most important data using the event viewer’s built-in filtering, and filter on date, IP address, user ID, and more with clickable log elements. You can trace log messages across multiple lines using the event viewer’s context links. Clicking on sender hostname shows only the messages from that host, which makes it easy to reconstruct the events leading to a kernel crash, application hang, and any other event recorded over multiple log file lines.Sign up for a free plan
